Top Ten Tuesday- “Outrageous” Things I’ve Done for the Love of Books

Hi everyone! I’m back with my fifth Top Ten Tuesday post and this week’s prompt is to list the Outrageous Things I’ve Done for the Love of Books. We book lovers have done a lot of “outrageous” things that we don’t consider to be “outrageous”…I mean, I don’t.. not really.

Top Ten Tuesday- "Outrageous" Things I’ve Done for the Love of Books
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme that was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

So, here I am.. just a book lover listing all the things I have done (and probably will in the future) for my love of books…

  • Started my own Book Blog and Bookstagram: Well, it hasn’t been THAT long since I started book blogging and clicking book photos( @book_rambler) but I can’t believe I took this leap. I used to blog about fashion and lifestyle but fell out of it and am so happy blogging about books now.

  • Reading all night long: What? This is outrageous? Girl, if you could hear my Mom screaming at me during 5am to shut the damn book and go to sleep, then yeah I guess you can shelve it under “outrageous” category.

  • Reading while eating: I want to credit my parents for pointing this “outrageous” thing out to me. Is it really though ? Outrageous? If y’all can watch TV while eating, I sure as h*ck can read. Yeah, I literally said that to my parents.

  • Reading while walking: Alright, this is outrageous ’cause I walked into a lamp post while reading and the bump on my head was no joke. Lesson learned.

  • Kiss interruption: Mid kiss, I had to flee because I just remembered that I left my book with my baby niece( who had given my book a thorough bath). In my opinion, this isn’t outrageous because I’m glad my niece interrupted but really ? did she really have to play with my book and give it a bath * cries like a baby *

The Day We met by Roxie Cooper

I finished reading The Day We Met by Roxie Cooper and it was a harrowing read for me. I was fully expecting to DNF it but to my surprise I liked it. I liked it in a way one “likes” Nicholas Sparks’ heart wrenching novels. I’ve tried to express my thoughts on this book in my review post which has been scheduled for tomorrow.

The Cold is in her bones

I received this review copy of The Day We Met from the publisher and I’m worried if I’ll like it or not.

Synopsis:Stephanie and Jamie are meant to be. The problem is they’re both with other people…

Stephanie doesn’t believe in fate, true love or living happily ever after. She’s content enough being engaged to Matt. But then she meets Jamie, who understands her more than anyone else ever has.

Jamie is happily married to his childhood sweetheart Helen and believes in everything Stephanie doesn’t. So why does he have such a strong connection with Stephanie?

When Stephanie and Jamie meet one fateful weekend in 2006 it will change everything…

Ten years. Two people. One epic love story.

The Cold is in her bones

I received this review copy of The Cold is in her Bones from the publisher and I was so excited to get this because this is a Medusa retelling.  Hopefully, I’ll love it  and I will know today because it’s a short read and I’m almost done.

Synopsis: Milla knows two things to be true: Demons are real, and fear will keep her safe.

Milla’s whole world is her family’s farm. She is never allowed to travel to the village and her only friend is her beloved older brother, Niklas. When a bright-eyed girl named Iris comes to stay, Milla hopes her loneliness might finally be coming to an end. But Iris has a secret she’s forbidden to share: The village is cursed by a demon who possesses girls at random, and the townspeople live in terror of who it will come for next.

Now, it seems, the demon has come for Iris. When Iris is captured and imprisoned with other possessed girls, Milla leaves home to rescue her and break the curse forever. Her only company on the journey is a terrible new secret of her own: Milla is changing, too, and may soon be a demon herself.

The Glass Woman

I finished reading The Glass Woman recently and I’ll publish a review for it this week.

Synopsis1686, ICELAND. AN ISOLATED, WINDSWEPT LAND HAUNTED BY WITCH TRIALS AND STEEPED IN THE ANCIENT SAGAS.

Betrothed unexpectedly to Jón Eiríksson, Rósa is sent to join her new husband in the remote village of Stykkishólmur. Here, the villagers are wary of outsiders.
But Rósa harbours her own suspicions. Her husband buried his first wife alone in the dead of night. He will not talk of it. Instead he gives her a small glass figurine. She does not know what it signifies.
The villagers mistrust them both. Dark threats are whispered. There is an evil here – Rósa can feel it. Is it her husband, the villagers – or the land itself?
Alone and far from home, Rósa sees the darkness coming. She fears she will be its next victim . . .
